Abstract

This article describes Ambulatory Visit Groups (AVGs) and the process by which they were defined. An approach to the analysis of physician productivity in the ambulatory setting is then demonstrated, with data derived from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey. Finally, recommendations for future work are presented to make this approach more effective in designing and managing ambulatory care delivery organizations.
